Fox moves ‘Australia’ release back

Kidman, Jackman film will come out Nov. 26

Fox is shifting its big-ticket Outback romance “Australia” to Nov. 26.

Pic was slated for Stateside release on Nov. 14, about 48 hours after its Nov. 13 world preem Down Under, but now the Oz date will also shift to tally with the U.S.

Warner Bros. recently moved its next “Harry Potter” movie from Nov. 21 to next summer.

Saga of an English woman (Nicole Kidman) who comes to remote Australia and falls for a rugged cattle driver (Hugh Jackman) is set against the backdrop of WWII.

Pic lensed in locations around Oz during 2007, and director Baz Luhrmann is currently shooting pickups in Australia with lead thesps.

Fox’s date shift will buy Luhrmann a little more time to finish the film.

Summit Entertainment leapt to the space vacated by “Harry Potter” with its highly anticipated vampire pic “Twilight.”

Other Thanksgiving movies include Disney toon “Bolt,” Cormac McCarthy adaptation “The Road” and another literary adaptation, “The Time Traveler’s Wife.”
